The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a beloved movie released in 1993 that has become a classic among both children and adults. Directed by Henry Selick and produced by Tim Burton, this stop-motion animated film takes audiences on a whimsical and sometimes eerie journey through the holiday worlds of Halloween Town and Christmas Town.

The film revolves around the misadventures of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town. Playful yet dissatisfied with his repetitive routine, Jack stumbles upon Christmas Town and becomes infatuated with the joy and wonder of the holiday season. Delighted by the newfound discovery, Jack decides to take over Christmas, causing chaos and confusion among the residents of Halloween Town.

The Nightmare Before Christmas features an ensemble cast of charming and quirky characters. Jack Skellington is voiced by Chris Sarandon, who brilliantly captures the essence of a melancholic yet curious protagonist. Catherine O'Hara provides the voice for Sally, a ragdoll who becomes infatuated with Jack and tries to save him from his misguided attempted takeover. The talented Danny Elfman not only composes the film's hauntingly beautiful music but also lends his voice to the Pumpkin King, singing iconic songs such as "Jack's Lament" and "What's This?".

Other notable characters include Dr. Finkelstein, an eccentric scientist voiced by William Hickey, and Oogie Boogie, a malicious and boisterous villain voiced by Ken Page. Additionally, the film features the voices of Glenn Shadix as the Mayor of Halloween Town, Paul Reubens as Lock, Catherine O'Hara (again) as Shock, and Ed Ivory as Santa Claus.

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a visual marvel, with meticulously crafted stop-motion animation that brings its unique world to life. From the dark and twisted designs of Halloween Town to the colorful and vibrant landscapes of Christmas Town, each scene is a feast for the eyes. The attention to detail is simply astounding, with the filmmakers creating a rich and immersive experience.

The music plays a significant role in enhancing the film's atmosphere and storytelling. Danny Elfman's score perfectly captures the whimsical and macabre essence of the movie. The songs are catchy, memorable, and delightfully eerie, with lyrics that beautifully convey the emotions and desires of the characters. Whether it's Jack singing about his existential crisis or Sally yearning for a better life, the music in The Nightmare Before Christmas leaves a lasting impact.

A longing that
A one, and a two, and a three, and a...
Absolutely no one is to know about it. Not a soul!
Ah, Halloween's finest trick or treaters.
Ah, little Harry and Jordan. Won't they be surprised?
Ah, you're jokin' You're jokin'
Ah! This'll stop Jack.
Ah. Lovely.
All around things to tantalize my brain
All is lost
All right.
All together that and this
All together that and this
Although I'd like to join the crowd
Although the impostor has been shot down...
Am I trying much too hard
An old man like me, who hardly has strength as it is.
And a demon of light
And a plaque that reads
And as hard as I tried I can't seem to describe
And at least I left some stories they can tell, I did
And by god I really tasted something swell
And by god I'm really going to give it all my might
And delivered Christmas to excited children all over the world.
And does he notice
And for a moment why, I even touched the sky
And for the first time since I don't remember when
And frog's breath?
And hang it like this on the wall
And I grow so weary of the sound of screams
And I just can't wait until next Halloween
And I, Jack
And I, Jack the Pumpkin King
And I'll scare you right out of your pants
And I've also heard it told That he's something to behold
And in my bones I feel the warmth
And in their place there seems to be good feeling all around
And Mr. Oogie Boogie man
And nobody really understood
And now with your permission I'm going to do my stuff
And on a dark cold night under full moonlight
And one more thing.
And scream like a banshee Make you jump out of your skin
And since I am dead I can take off my head
And sit together
And the best I must confess I have saved for the last
And the whole thing's topped with a bow
And the year before that, and the year before that.
And they call him
And this: my Sandy Claws outfit. I want you to make it.
And though I'd like to stand by him
And we thought you didn't like us, Jack.
And will he see
And will we ever
And you ain't goin' nowhere
Are you a gamblin' man, Sandy?
As anyone can see
As often as I've read them Something's wrong
Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust.
Attention. Attention, citizens.
Authorities assure us that at this moment...
Be careful with Sandy Claws when you fetch him.
Began to grow
Bitter!
Boys and girls of every age
Bury him for 90 years Then see if he talks
But it seems wrong to me. Very wrong.
But look There's nothing underneath
But there's still no sign yet of Santa.
But they don't understand
But they said you were dead. You must be double dead!
But who here
But you're the Pumpkin King!
By the time he's through with you, you'll be lucky if you...
Bye bye, doll face and sandman.
Can take the whole thing over then
Careful, my precious jewel.
Carting bulging sacks with his big great arms
Christmas Town.
Christmastime is buzzing in my skull
Come on into the lab and we'll get you all fixed up.
Come with us and you will see
Come year after year
Did anyone think to dredge the lake?
Doctor, thank you for coming.
Don't know if we're ever going to get him back
Dr. Beetlestein.
Eleven!
End up together
Eureka!
Everybody scream Everybody scream
Everybody's waiting for the next surprise
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song
Everyone, please Now not so fast
Everyone's waiting for the next surprise
Everything's
Everything's
Excellent, Igor.
Far from my home
Filling your dreams to the brim with fright
Find a deep cave to hide in
Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair
Fire!
First we're going to set some bait inside a nasty trap and wait
First we're going to set some bait inside a nasty trap and wait
For I am not the one
For it is plain
For most blood drained in a single evening.
For my talents are renowned far and wide
For the ruler of this Christmasland
Forgive me, Mr. Claws.
Frog's breath will overpower any odor.
Gone all wrong
Good bye, Jack.
Good news, folks. Santa Claus, the one and only, has finally been spotted.
Great Halloween, everybody.
Halloween, Halloween Halloween, Halloween
Halloween, Halloween Halloween, Halloween
Halloween, Halloween Halloween, Halloween
Happy Halloween!
Has been blown to smithereens.
Have grown so tired of the same old thing
Have I possibly gone daffy What is this
Haven't you heard of peace on earth and goodwill toward men?
He flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky
He'd give it all up
He'll be so pleased I do declare
He'll fix things, Jack. He knows what to do.
He's all alone up there locked away inside
He's setting things right, bringing joy and cheer wherever he goes.
Hee hee hee hee hee!
Hello. Police.
Help!
Help! Help! Help!
Here comes Jack.
Here in an instant Gone in a flash
Here lies poor old Jack
Here you go, boy.
Here, let me show you.
Hmm.

Hmm. Experiments?
Hmm. Hmm.
Hmm. Ooh ooh ooh!
Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho!
Ho ho ho ho!
Ho ho ho ho! Hee hee hee hee hee!
Ho ho ho! Ha ha ha ha ho!
Ho, ho, ho! No.
Hold it. We haven't given out the prizes yet.
Hold on. Where are we going now?
How about it? Think you can manage?
How could I
How could it be? Just follow the pattern.
How dare you treat my friends so shamefully!
How did you get down here, Sally?
How horrible our Christmas will be.
How much he means to me
How perfectly marvelous!
Huh?
I am the clown with a tear away face
I am the one hiding under your bed
I am the one hiding under your stairs
I am the shadow on the moon at night
I am the who when you call who's there
I am the wind blowing through your hair
I believe it was our most horrible yet. Thank you, everyone.
I bet I could improve it too And that's exactly what I'll do
I can't believe my ears
I can't make decisions by myself.
I did! But he wasn't there.
I don't believe what's happening to me
I don't know. Do you get it?
I excel without ever even trying
I felt it in my gut.
I felt just like my old bony self again
I have a special present for you anyway. There you go, sonny.
I have seen grown men give out a shriek
I knew it!
I knew this Christmas thing was a bad idea.
I know how you feel.
I know the stories and I know the rhymes
I made you with my own hands.
I might just split a seam now if I don't die laughin' first
I need to go over them with you so we can get started.
I peeked behind the cyclops' eye.
I repeat, the impostor has been shot down...
I say that we take a cannon Aim it at his door and then
I sense there's something in the wind
I think it's not to be
I told you!
I tromped through the pumpkin patch.
I want it, oh, I want it Oh, I want it for my own
I went and did my best
I'd like to join you by your side
I'll get you out of here.
I'm conducting a series of experiments.
I'm not hungry. Oops.
I'm Santa Claus.
I'm very sorry for the inconvenience, sir.
I've got something, listen now This one is real good you'll see
I've got the beard, the coat, the boots, the belt...
I've got to know, I've got to know what is this place that I have found
I've never felt so good before
I've never known
I've read these Christmas books so many times
If he only could
If you haven't, I'd say it's time you begun!
In a million years
In a place that perhaps you've seen in your dreams.
In our town of Halloween
In the town of Halloween
In their enthusiastic cloud
In these little bric a brac A secret's waiting to be cracked
In this town Don't we love it now
In this town of Halloween
